The American company Amazon has introduced a paid cloud service Amazon Halo based on AI and a fitness bracelet Amazon Halo Band without a screen, which are designed to fully track user activity.
In addition to standard steps and calories burned (activity), the system also evaluates: sleep quality and gives recommendations for improving it; estimates the body mass index with the determination of the percentage of fat from photographs, and is twice as accurate as smart scales; tonality and emotionality of the voice and other experimental parameters.
The Amazon Halo Bracelet has a promotional price of $ 64.99 and includes a six-month Amazon Halo subscription. After the end of the trial period, the monthly subscription will cost $ 3.99 and the bracelet will cost $ 99.99.
How Amazon Halo works is explained in detail in the following video:
The Amazon Halo wristband does not contain a screen that consumes additional energy and “confuses” the user – all information will be displayed in the application on the smartphone (Bluetooth 5.0 protocol and Android and iOS smartphones are supported). The gadget is equipped with an optical sensor, a pair of microphones, an LED indicator, a control button and a charging connector.
A full battery charge should last for 7 days with the voice recognition disabled (Tone) or 2 days with the function enabled. Charging from 0 to 100% takes less than 90 minutes. The bracelet is water resistant up to 50 meters.
The bracelet will be offered in three sizes (Small, Medium, Large) and three colors (Black, Silver, Rose Gold), and alternative straps in fabric and silicone will also be available. The capsule weighs 18 grams, bracelets – from 5.2 to 6.0 grams, depending on the size.
